Why Do You Need a Record Expungement Attorney?

As your Miami expungement attorney, we are sure you will see the benefits of our expungement services in no time.

Criminal court record is considered public information and anyone is able to see the details of your arrest and your case and make judgments about you without knowing the full story – or understanding your journey since your arrest.

Working as your expungement attorney, the Law Offices of Ama Mariya Hoffenden will seal (or expunge) your record and ensure you have a chance to move on with your life without public records detailing your criminal history.

Requirements For Sealing or Expungement


To enjoy the benefits of record expungement, there are some requirements that you must first meet.

Successfully meet these criteria, and we can seal or expunge your criminal record, including felony records, to help you move on with your life.

The requirements include:

  • You must not have plead guilty or been found not guilty for a criminal charge
  • You were arrested but found not guilty of the charges against you
  • You filed your petition within one year of receiving approval
  • You don’t have any multiple prior arrests

There are also some other issues we will need to consider as your Florida expungement lawyer. We must obtain a certificate of eligibility, which includes evidence that you were never convicted, proving you meet all criteria listed above.

You must also never have received any withhold of adjudication for other crimes in Florida.

Not sure? The Law Offices of Ama Mariya Hoffenden can help you determine eligibility – and if we determine that you fit the requirements, we would be delighted to move forward and help you overcome this life obstacle!

When You Cannot Deny or Fail to Acknowledge Any Arrests

After your criminal record has been successfully expunged, there will still be some instances where you will not be able to either deny or fail to acknowledge that you have previously been arrested.

These instances typically tend to involve specific kinds of employment. Still, it is important to note that a judge will only be able to give your criminal records to a person or entity under these circumstances.

Some examples of this include:

  • Seeking employment with the Department of Juvenile Justice or organizations with direct contact with children
  • You’re a defendant in another criminal prosecution
  • Seeking employment in a law enforcement agency
  • Seeking admission to the Florida Bar
  • Seeking employment with the Department of Education

  • Sexual battery
  • Robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking/Aggravated Stalking

Our team of white-collar criminal defense attorneys is fully equipped and prepared to fight your corner in federal court.

How long do you have to wait to file for expungement?
faq-close2faq-chset2

An expunged record is sealed – meaning it is not accessible by the general public and does not come up on a normal background check.
